How do I upload a profile picture

Hi everyone,

I can't work out how to upload a profile picture and haven't found anything in FAQs.

There's a pixel limit it seems that I can't get round.

Could anyone point me in the right direction?

TIA, Rich.

If you found your way to User Control Panel, open the Profile Tab and go to Edit Avatar

If you’ve got that far and can’t upload because your picture is too big, you need to reduce it in Photoshop or some other piece of editing software. I think you are only allowed 90×90 pixels.

^^^ Thanks, I'll I need to get the editing software to do it. Indeed, it's the pixel limit that stops me.

Thanks for the information, Rich.

Photo Editor on my Android phone will do this in the 'Export' tag.

I use it for every photo I post to bring them under the 3MB limit set by TapaTalk.

Probably Guy needs to think about a new profile picture too. :lol: It’s a bit like someone else having a profile photo of your wife/girlfriend on their profile. :shock: :D

I have. Did the Francés from St Jean in 2011.

Are you a Peregrino?

I did it with my wife and kids During the holidays over three summers. We did the Finisterre Camino too the year before last. Happy memories.
Thanks for the photos. 🙏

Fantastic! I’m not sure we’ve had another Peregrino on the form. I will send you a PM – it would be good to chat. :clap:
